Common Sources of Hydrocarbon Presence
in an Air Separation Plant (ASP)

Feedstock Contamination

System Leaks

Contaminated Equipment

Process Upsets

Inadequate Purification

How to manage hydrocarbon content in an ASP

  • Implementing rigorous feedstock purification processes to remove hydrocarbon impurities before entering the ASP.
  • Maintaining the ASP system and equipment to minimize leaks and ensure tight seals, preventing the ingress of hydrocarbons.
  • Monitoring and analyzing gas samples at various points within the ASP using analytical techniques like gas chromatography to detect and quantify hydrocarbon content.
  • Implementing preventive maintenance programs and leak detection systems to identify and address any hydrocarbon leaks promptly.

Optimize product quality, enhance safety,and maximize the efficiency and reliability of the process.
